POP culture is great. You never know that a thing which was written or shot will become a success. And you cannot foresee that certain characters will come to life in other works. Computer games, books and of course movies. They all mingle with each other. Great examples are Batman, Spiderman and my favorite The X-men.
The X-men are a group of superhumans, where each one has some supernatural powers. We have, among others, Cyclop (who can shoot deadly beams from his eyes), Storm (who commands the weather), Marvel girl (who has telekinetic powers), Wolverine (strong and fast guy, who can grow claws in a second) Mistique (the coolest one - who can turn into anybody) and many others. They all have the "X-gene" which ordinary people don't have. And they all unite under Professor Xavier, who is trying to train them and give them a home.
However, they are also, of course, bad mutants, led by Magneto, who try to dominate the world - like all bad guys do. Professor Xavier and his X-men are fighting againts them :)
I have not read the comic books since I'm not a comic book person, but I watched all the movies. Over the years the filmmakers managed to cast some great names into the film: Kevin Bacon, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Michael Fassbender, Patric Stewart, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy to name only a few. They do all sorts of stunts and get into all sorts of crazy fights.
If one likes pure entertainment with some serious moments and deeper meanings I reccomend X-men to everybody.
